Immortality’s first trailer shows off an ‘interactive movie trilogy’
Sam Barlow, creator Her story as well as Tells a lieback with a new game and a new puzzle.
Immortality is based on the story of actress Marissa Marcel, who made three unreleased films and then disappeared. The game’s first trailer, released on Wednesday, gives us a first look at each of the films and gives us an accurate idea of how players will be able to piece together the clues.
ImmortalityThe trailer positions the game as an interactive movie trilogy. Judging by the gameplay footage, it appears that players will have to practice cuts of matches in the movies to figure out exactly what happened to Marissa. Players can click on specific areas of each scene they are shown and will be redirected to a new scene where the character or object they clicked on will be in a similar pose or position. Based on the trailer, it looks like Immortality contains dozens of scenes from each film, and maybe from all three films in their entirety.
So far, all of Barlow’s games have been about unraveling mysteries using unique, often fairly simple game mechanics. Her story allows players to view footage of interrogations using a keyword search, while Tells a lie allows players to use several desktop features for their investigation.
Immortality No release date yet, but it will release this summer on Xbox Series X, Xbox Game Pass, and Windows.
